Every Tuesday Single Minded highlights new tracks hitting stores (or the Web) this week. On Fridays, come back for rarities, remixes, mash-ups and more.
Flo Rida, "American Superstar" [MySpace]
Not nearly as good as Ken Tucky.
She & Him, "Sentimental Heart" [MySpace]
Zooey Deschanel teams with indie-folk singer-songwriter M. Ward for a record of cruising AM radio pop. The label was originally hoping for Ellen Page and Ryan Adams, but both backed out due to "other commitments."
Lyrics Born, "Hot 2 Deff" [Hype Machine]
The latest from nimble indie rapper is titled Everywhere At Once - a veiled reference to that damned Flo Rida song.
The Hush Sound, "Honey" [MySpace]
Chicago quartet makes stately, ornamented pop perfect to accompany those long, long nights at South Pacific rehearsal after school.
The Matches, "Wake the Sun" [Hype Machine]
When their new album leaked, California rock band the Matches suggested that everyone who downloaded it donate to a charity. They humbly recommend a charity called "Keep the Matches Employed."
